Newbie with a 97 Rexhall Vision 27'

Hello all,

Hoping I am asking a simple question (because as my wife likes to tell me I am a simple man). First motorhome and only had it 2 weeks now.

I have the above motorhome and am trying to get water into it as the taps have stopped working (gauge is still showing half but think that might be another problem). I have put water in what seems to be the city side (on drivers side near the fuel inlet where hose screws on) but couldn't tell if much was going in, the taps worked for about 30 sec's then stopped. Tried filling on the potable water inlet (next to door) and know a lot of water went in but same thing again. Pump does turn on when switch is activated but no water flowing.

I am not sure if I am filling it correctly or is there is something I need to do since I am thinking I ran it dry.

Looking for advice as this is all new to me and happy travels all.

Don't know about your specific MH but many have a valve to allow filling the fresh water tank while hooked up to city water. If that valve is left in the "tank fill" position the pump will merely recirculate the tank water back into the tank.

Second, the water pumps are supposed to be self priming but sometimes this can be problematic. When I use mine to pump in the pink stuff for winter sometimes it can be very balky.

Have a nice day - Darrel
